‘Drive’ for Central Ohio, ‘Descendants’ for Kansas City, ‘The Artist’ for Vancouver, and ‘Tree of Life’ for Denver

Time to catch up on some critics awards after a brief hiatus. The Central Ohio, Kansas City, Vancouver, and Denver critics all can’t agree on a Best Picture winner, but they do have some categories in common. For instance, all four agree that Christopher Plummer from Beginners is the Best Supporting Actor of 2011 and three of the four agree that A Separation is the Best Foreign Film. In most of the other categories, they are all over the board.

Take a look at all of the nominations below and let me know which group you think got it right.
